St. Elizabeth Medical Center Announces Staff Reduction

Kristine Bellino, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – St. Elizabeth Medical Center has announced plans to lay off fewer than 10 positions of its 1,975 person staff.

According to the hospital, these layoffs are needed to ensure the hospital’s long-term
sustainability. Numerous factors led to the reduction of the Medical Center’s workforce including the decreased reimbursement to hospitals by New York State Medicaid over multiple years. In addition, Medicare reimbursements have not kept pace with the high cost of care.

St. Elizabeth has experienced over $11 million of New York State Medicaid cuts in the past
3 years. No registered nurses will be laid off.
